We are excited to bring you Normandy’s first Missions Highlight. Our missions giving goes to like-minded organizations that are committed to seeing the Kingdom of God advanced through the preaching of the gospel and the care for the modern-day orphan and widow locally, across the US and internationally.
We want our body to know more about how we use their gifts. We believe that sharing what God is doing through the organizations we support financially will achieve that goal.
This month, we are excited for our first ever highlight to be of an organization whose founders are near and dear to our hearts and staff! Mark and Emily have been attending Normandy since our first church service back in 2012, and Mark is on staff as our Groups’ Director.
Mark and Emily’s organization, WakeWell, has the specific purpose to take “the living water of Jesus to the people of the wake culture.” WakeWell is the only ministry that exists to share the gospel with this specific group of people. It is on the frontlines of wake culture reaching people for Christ.
In the past six months, the WakeWell team has baptized two new believers into the body of Christ at their local cable parks among friends and family. Normandy helps incredible moments like this become possible by supporting the WakeWell ministry financially, spiritually, and emotionally as they grow and expand.
Financially, Normandy’s giving goes directly to their annual operating budget. Specifically, in the past year, this giving has allowed WakeWell to hire its first full time staff member, Jacob Simmons, who also attends Normandy Church!
Over the next six months, WakeWell will gear up to expand internationally. They desire to take the gospel of Jesus to wakeboarders all across the globe. Their team feels that God has finally positioned them to do that successfully.
When we asked Mark how Normandy can continue to partner with WakeWell in this goal, he said, “Come ride, hang out, and build relationships alongside us at the local WakeWell chapters. Pray for our mission to continue to reach the lost people of wake culture. Give to help support us as God continues to expand our organization.”
Luckily, there is a very tangible way to do that coming up in just a few days! The 4thAnnual DFW WakeWell Banquet is being held November 10that 6:00 pm at Hydrous Allen (580 North Cedar Drive, Allen, TX). You can sign up for a seat or table at this event by clicking
We are extremely proud of the Heger’s and their relentless pursuit of the unreached. Thank you for giving so that we can help bless them on their mission!
